THE Berlin comedy!, 7 Dec 2012
James Cagney as lead along with then German newcomers Lieselotte Pulver and Horst Buchholz showing their potential in a exquisitely funny comedy set in cold war Berlin! Fascinating historic views.of the post-war German capital. Unfortunately the well-deserved success of the movie was killed by the shortly after erected Berlin wall that turned an amused laugh into a frightened shiver. In retrospective yet another Billy Wilder highlight movie that can be laughed about again thanks to the winds of change!
Berlin these days is definitely worth a trip and this movie is an early motion picture declaration of love for this great city!
Don't forget to have a chilled coke at hand, just any other softdrink won't do for this picture!
